On Wednesday 29 January 2020, N. Buljubašić will defend her PhD dissertation, entitled: ‘Dynamic Aspects of Associations in Coronary Artery Disease: From Intracoronary Imaging to Blood Biomarkers’.
Recurrent adverse cardiovascular events still occur in a substantial proportion of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients, despite enhanced technology and augmented treatment options. The need for improved risk prediction in patients with CAD has therefore been the main drive for this thesis. By expanding our knowledge on blood biomarkers and genetic polymorphisms that may play a part in the pathophysiology of CAD, a road to the future of optimal risk stratification in patients with established CAD is created.
The public defence will take place at the Prof. Andries Queridoroom, 3rd floor Education Center, Erasmus MC. The ceremony will begin exactly at 11.30 hrs. In light of the solemn nature of the ceremony, we recommend that you do not take children under the age of 6 to the first part of the ceremony.
